Another Wednesday morning, another set of new landmarks on the city's roster. Yesterday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission grew its jurisdiction by three buildings. The newbies: the Eleventh Street Methodist Episcopal Chapel, an 1868 church designed by William Field and Son; the Thomas W. Lamb-designed Loew's Canal Street Theatre at 31 Canal Street, which has hopes of becoming a cultural arts center; and 97 Bowery, which housed a carriage supply business back in the Bowery's more industrial days. Aside from their status as architectural special snowflakes, "these buildings collectively speak to many aspects of the immigrant experience in the East Village and on the Lower East Side in the 19th and early 20th centuries," according to the LPC press release. We do like our landmark designations themed!
